Description: Sarah has always been curious about history of all sorts. She got it from her parents who ran an antiquities store until they died on the Lusitania. She inherited the shop though she's only recently come into adulthood to take ownership of it. In her case, however, she is most interested in the oral tradition and collecting the stories told by people about their pasts, their families and their experiences. As she grew up with relatives, she was always getting into trouble sneaking into places she wasn't wanted to eavesdrop on people and sometimes take a few interesting things. Of late she's used those skills to steal client lists from other antique shops to get her family's shop running. Her cousin's disappearance worries her, but, more than anything else she is curious about the story.

Abilities

Fleeing – given her past history of often getting into trouble, Sarah is very good at getting away. These points can be used in chases. The points that are in excess of her Athletics x2 were half-cost.
Conceal can be used both to conceal or disguise objects and to recognize when an object has been deliberately concealed or altered to look like something else.
Preparedness – You are an expert at predicting the things you might need. If you come across an obstacle that a particular object might allow you to move past, you can perform a Test to see if you have it. This depends on the narrative credibility of the item being requested being on hand. Some obvious things will not require a test. Some items the Keeper will simply forbid.
